The King and the Parrot and Other Fables.

A fascinating book. The seven fables presented here (out of the twelve in Fabeln Aus Aller Welt) include five Aesopic fables, each with one black-and-white page and a double page of color: The Mortal and the Satyr, The Thieves and the Cockerel, The Fearful Frogs and the Battling Bulls, The Peacocks and the Raven, and FS. The latter might be the best of the colored illustrations. The other two fables are the Tibetan title-fable and The Sow Under the Oak by Krylov. The black-and-white woodcuts may come off well in this inexpensive reprint while the colored woodcuts are so much better in the original. Consult it now that I have found it!
